What kind of person is Gege Akutami, the author of Jujutsu Kaisen?

Jujutsu Kaisen is very interesting.

It’s now one of the most popular manga in the world.

It’s also one of my favorite manga.


The author is called Gege Akutami.

He is a genius and has a great sense of humor.

I’d like to introduce him to you guys.


And you’ll like him after reading this article.

Influenced by a lot of manga

Gege is saying that he is influenced by a lot of manga.

In fact, Jujutsu Kaisen has some scenes that are similar to those manga.

Especially Gege loves BLEACH.

He even drew a bunch of poetry for Tite Kubo, the author of BLEACH, when he was in junior high school.


However, Gege has learned the Good things from these great manga and is applying them to Jujutsu Kaisen.

He’s amazing!!!


Gege likes girls with fat legs


It has been said that all girls drawn by Gege have fat legs.

Although this has been solved in Jujutsu Kaisen, it seems that when “Nikai Bongai Barabarjura” was published, Gege and his editor argued about the thickness of the characters’ legs.


Apparently, fat legs are his favorite.

However, when his brother got married, Gege drew a welcome board for the wedding.Gege drew his wife’s legs too thick and his mom got angry.

Then he stopped drawing fat legs.


Gege doesn’t like Gojo?

Gojo is the most popular character in Jujutsu Kaisen.

He is the strongest, the coolest, and perfect in every way except for his personality.

However, Gege seems to hate him.

When Gojo came in first place in the popularity poll, Gege wrote this comment.


“To the people who voted Gojo, especially women, choose Nanami instead.”

This is not a comment on the character creator made, is it!!? lol


And in the author’s comments in Shonen Jump, he wrote about Gojo several times.

Looks like he doesn’t like Gojo very much.


Gege likes Nanami though.

Other characters are just normal.

But I wonder why he hates Gojo so much?

I’m curious to know why.


That’s all about Gege Akutami.

I hope you understand that he is a very unique and interesting person.

I’m both a fan of Jujutsu Kaisen and Gege Akutami.

The more I know about him, the more I like him.

I hope this article will help you find one more person who likes them too!


I’ll continue to support him and Jujutsu Kaisen.
